Warning Signs You Need Furnace Repair
Furnaces are a necessary item for the cold winters in Charlotte, NC. It’s always unfortunate when something goes wrong with your furnace or heat pump, but knowing that you have a reliable service company on your side makes heating repair much more manageable. Here are some warning signs to look out for if you need furnace repair:
Life Expectancy for Furnaces
The life expectancy of furnaces averages between 16 and 20 years. As furnaces age, they lose efficiency, and you become aware that the heating bill increases which appears to be unrelated to billing adjustments caused increasing costs of fuel or electricity. An aging furnace breaks down more often requiring service calls as related to a failed blower motor for instance which causes irritating noises due to a failing blower motor. Generally, the increase in service requests occurs in the last two years of the life of the furnace.
Typical Furnace Problems
There are many causes of problems with your furnace. Do not try to troubleshoot a disabled furnace without experience. The common problems include the age of the heating equipment, increasing heating bills, the furnace requiring an increasing number of repairs, your home starts to feel uncomfortable, your furnace is noisy, the furnace pilot light turns to a yellow color and malfunction of the thermostat. Your home no longer feels warm when the seasons change and adjusting the thermostat doesn’t solve the problems. You start to notice more dust on your on our furniture, and you notice flu-like or allergy symptoms.
